Everything You Need to Know About Finding Self Storage in Minneapolis, MN
Minneapolis, Minnesota was once globally renowned for its flour and timber mills, but is now renowned for being the hometown of Prince (the 5’2” purple-obsessed mega pop star, that is, not just a random son of a monarch). Mill City (for old time’s sake!) has a humid continental climate that brings cold, snowy winters, warm(ish) summers, and sunshine just 58% of the time. It’s also one of the Twin Cities (Saint Paul is the other) and, with a population of 407,207, the largest city in the state.
Because of the notoriously cold winters—and, let’s be honest, autumns and springs—this city had the smarts to build the Minneapolis Skyway System, which is 8 glorious miles of enclosed pedestrian walkways that take you to numerous buildings within 69 city blocks. This may just be the best reason ever to move to a new city! You can use these footbridges to comfortably walk to and from offices, hotels, restaurants, shops, and condos in the downtown area.
Prince often returns to his birthplace, and when he does you know he’s not stashing his Princephernalia in his mom’s basement—this multi-instrumentalist very likely rents a self storage unit or five for his guitar, piano, drums, sax, harmonica, and purple spandex jumpsuits.
Check out live music at the Icehouse or Cause Spirits & Sound Bar, or go dancing at Honey or The Loft (with a terrific cityscape view of Minneapolis). And be sure to take a stroll around Eat Street, a 17-block neighborhood that features restaurants and cafes like Spyhouse Coffee, Bad Waitress, and Tibet Kitchen, as well as attractions like Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the rock-climbing facility Vertical Endeavors, and Eat Street Players, a “rockin' community theater at Plymouth Congregational Church.”
Because Minneapolis is rated as the 3rd most literate city in the country, you won’t want to miss visiting Open Book, which houses the Loft Literary Center. There are also plenty of bookstores around town, like Wild Rumpus, an especially fun place for kids with its resident cat and chicken, Once Upon a Crime, and Common Good Books, which highlights local authors.
You should also visit Minnehaha Park (i.e. “Laughing Water”), a city park with a 53-foot waterfall, and take a cruise around town on the Traveling Tap, a pub on wheels. But don’t worry, one of Minneapolis’ laws states that “No person may be charged with or convicted of the offense of drunkenness or public drunkenness.” Of course, some other archaic (and, quite frankly, mind-boggling) laws still on the books make it illegal to cross state lines with a duck on top of your head or drive a truck with dirty tires.
So what do you do with your surplus of ducks and dirty tires? Stash those unlawful objects in a convenient self storage facility.
